At first, the family thought there was no way the dog in the video could be their Max. Max is a husky with a thick, gorgeous coat of fur, and the dog in the video was basically yellow and looked nothing like their energetic, vivacious furry family member. Even though it felt like a long shot, they decided to look into it anyway, just in case the dog in the video really was their Max.
“My husband Jeff was actually looking through news videos on Facebook and came across one that said they found a dog named Max by Stratton’s Market on Sawmill,” Yeager said. “We live about a few houses down, so we called up the news person [and] asked how he knew his name and everything, and he described his collar.”
As soon as the man described the dog’s collar, the Yeagers knew that the dog in the video was their Max after all.
